MySQL Monitoring with Percona Monitoring and Management

MySQL Monitoring with Percona Monitoring and Management

 25 April - 11:30 AM - 12:20 PM @ Ballroom E
Experience level: 
50 minutes conference


In this talk, I will introduce Percona’s latest open source software tool: Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM). I will briefly discuss high-level aspects of monitoring we’ve found work well in practice at Percona, and then spend the rest of the time with an online demonstration of how to use this tool to identify common MySQL issues. This demonstration will examine: · Base hardware performance and resource utilization assessment: CPU, disk, memory and network – all common performance problem causes. · MySQL-level metrics: how to understand the true MySQL load using command counters and row operations, as well as getting into userstat details such as query response time measurements and Performance Schema. · Individual MySQL query performance: how to find and optimize the most run MySQL queries, new queries, and queries that have started using more resources.
